Our constitution is Questionable

I read somewhere that our constitution was prepared as if a creature is prepared taking arms from one animal,legs from another animal, head from some other animal, torso from some other animal.


Thus this creature is having all the body parts but having NO LIFE.


Please give your precious comments.


Also note that this post is not to hurt anybody's feelings,apology incorporated beforehandedly, if someone gets hurt.

I advise you to make an effort to study our Constitution to know it better being an Indian and then come here to know about its flaws and good aspects.

I disagree that 'this creature has no life'. Surely printed words cannot have life,but the writers have poured their sould into it,so while reading, soul emerges from the book and touches our heart.So it is not the book that will lead you,but it is the spirit which words carries. If I cannot see,does not mean that things do not exist.You worship the constitution and constituion will give you boon.

GOOD SUGGESTION BY MS. SUCHARITA.

MY ADDITION IS - TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION ALSO

I read ........ from some other animal. - MIGHT BE, IT IS WRITTEN BY ANY ANIMAL.

I agree with Arup, that harsh approach should be avoided. Moreover it appears the author wanted a intellectual discussion not a mud slinging at each other by getting defensive. If any document is sound enough then there should not be any problem discussing, scrutinizing or analysing it openly. In a democracy every divergent or uncommon view should have the right to express opinions. Everyone should try to understand, appreciate each others views by keeping one's personal biases and prejudices of mind aside. While surfing the net for material related to the topic of this discussion I came across some surprising opinions. Take time, read and try to understand the views https://www.newenglishreview.org/custpage.cfm/frm/44259/sec_id/44259

Right to Equality

 

ART 14.

 

The State shall not deny to any person

Equality before the law or

The equal protection of the laws

Within the territory of India.

 

ART 15.

 

(1) The State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, s*x, place of birth or any of them.

 

(2) No citizen shall, on grounds only of religion, race, caste, s*x, place of birth or any of them, be subject to any disability, liability, restriction or condition with regard to—

(a) access to shops, public restaurants, hotels and

places of public entertainment; or

(b) the use of wells, tanks, bathing ghats, roads

and places of public resort maintained wholly or

partly out of State funds or dedicated to the use of

the general public.

 

(3) Nothing in this article shall prevent the State from making any special provision for women and children.

 

(4) Nothing in this article or in clause (2) of article 29 shall prevent the State from making any special provision for the advancement of any socially and educationally backward classes of citizens or for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes.

 

(5) Nothing in this article or in sub-clause (g) of clause (1) of article 19 shall prevent the State from making any special provision, by law, for the advancement of any socially and educationally backward classes of citizens or for the Scheduled Castes or the Scheduled Tribes in so far as such special provisions relate to their admission to educational institutions including private educational institutions, whether aided or unaided by

the State, other than the minority educational institutions

referred to in clause (1) of article 30.

 

Look at the art 15 (1) where The State promising not to discriminate - on grounds only of

religion,

race,

caste,

s*x,

place of birth

or any of them. 

 

Now check art 15 (3, 4, & 5) which opposes the provisions of art 15 (1).

IT IS PROTECTION AND SUPPORT TO WEAKER SECTION OF SOCIETY SO THAT THEY CAN COMPETE WITH THOSE WHO ARE COMPARATIVELY IN DOMINANT POSITION BUT A PREJUDICED MIND CANNOT UNDERSTAND THIS WHO IS IN BETTER POSITION.  IT IS A "ROBINHOOD CONSTITUTION".

BUT IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE THAT DOMINANT SECTION IS THE REASON FOR NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS GREAT EQUALITY AMONG ALL SECTIONS.

THEN WHAT IS THE USE OF ART 15 (1)?

AND IF, ART 15(1) NOT THERE, 15 (3,4 & 5) ALSO NEED NOT BE THERE.

WHAT GOVT DOING, LET IT TO BE DONE BY THEM.

 WHY THIS ART 15 IS THERE WHAT THE PURPOSE IT SERVING?

VERY SPECIFICALLY ART 15 (1)?
